What The World Needs

As you look around and see what’s going on in the world, my guess is you have an opinion or two about what it needs.  Let’s face it!  Probably everybody has multiple opinions about that topic.  But, let’s reduce the needs down to one and, then, maybe some real progress could be made.

I’m sure you’ve heard something like this before:  One person can truly make a difference; or, Change begins with one person making a decision; or, Things change one person at a time; or, how about this one:  Change occurs one step at a time.  Any one of those thoughts could be inspirational enough for someone to be moved toward doing their part in making the world a better place.

But, I think we have to go deeper than any one of those thoughts take us.  Deeper in the sense of passion.  The fact is nothing happens until passion is present.  Every new innovation or change is born from the passionate creativity and belief of the instigator.  No passion…no purpose.  No purpose…no chance.

What the world needs is as stated by Howard Thurman an influential American author, philosopher, theologian, educator and civil rights leader.  He said:  “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive.  And then go and do that.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

You…that’s what the world needs!
